Guest Post at My First Book, Awards, and Watson

Breaking News, everyone! Today I'm guest posting over at Misha's blog My First Book on Strong Female Protagonists.

It would be awesome if you went to check it out. :)


In other news, I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Luke Raftl at All your stars are out. Thank you so much, Luke!

(I hope you'll excuse me if I don't pass this on/answer the questions. I've done it before, and I don't have a  lot of time today.)

Also, The Words Crafter at The Rainy Day Wanderer recently handed the Write Hard award to those who came by her blog, and I decided to do the same; so, reader, go ahead and take this one if you want it!


And you know what? Watson--a computer created by IBM--actually did win Jeopardy!


Finally, don't forget to check out the interview with Nicole MacDonald below, if you haven't yet!

Have a wonderful weekend, bloggers!

Congratulations on your award. I wanted to ask you a question seeing as you are a Chinese American. What do you think of the whole Tiger Mom thing and how Professor Chua believes strongly that Chinese parents are superior at raising children than American ones?

Old Kitty said...

Congrats on your award! And yes, Watson won jeopardy. Would you have been disappointed if he had lost?

I read your piece, it was so great. Congrats on the award and I now know the next game show: So You Think You're Smarter Than A Computer?

Hi Golden Eagle. I just came over from Misha's blog, and I left you a comment there.

For anyone who hasn't seen Golden Eagle's post, do go and take a look. It's very thought provoking.

Congrats on the awards!

Louise said...

Carole Anne Carr said...

Well done with that guest post, we need more characters like that.

Elliot Grace said...

...a guest post! Good for you...well deserving:)

Michael: Thank you!

Seeing as I'm still a teenager, you may want to ask me that again later. :P

My mom is American; she adopted me from China, so while I'm Asian her family has been living in the USA for centuries. (Yes, centuries.) Personally, I think it depends on the family. Different people grow up in different households, regardless of borders.

Old Kitty: Thank you so much!

Thanks! :)

I know! I was cheering for him on Wednesday night; he might have said Toronto was a US city, but he still won by a huge margin.

Emily: Definitely cool!

Michael: Thank you!

I hope you're enjoying yours!

Book blogger: Thank you!

Michelle: Thanks! :)

Regina: Aw, thank you so much!


You're very welcome. :)

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Angela: Thank you!

Yes. LOL. The short answer is yes, the long answer is I would have felt bad for the IBM Team (I watched a PBS NOVA program about them) and then dismayed technology wasn't up to analyzing natural language.

Clarissa: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!

It's possible! :P

Donea: Thank you!

Thanks so much. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Margo: Thank you!

I'm glad you enjoyed my post at Misha's!

Tony: Thank you so much! :)

Louise: Thank you!

Hi there, Fellow Crusader. Welcome to my blog!

Jules: Thanks so much! :)

LOL. I never really thought I'd be cheering for a computer.

Theresa: Awesome! I read your comment there; I have to agree, becoming a vampire isn't much of a career!

Thank you!

Carole: Thank you!

There really should be more strong female MCs.

Elliot: Thanks! :)
